The last stand

After years of debate, town council recently decided to remove the stand of trees adjacent to the Ponoka Industrial Airport.

The job of felling the trees was all but over Feb. 22.

Council determined that in the interest of safety and for the advancement of the airport, the 40-yearold stand of trees must come down. Plans are to plant a row of shrubs in their place and plant more trees along the town’s walking trails.

Beaver Mulching out of Rocky Mountain House was awarded the job with a bid of $7,800.

Ponoka CAO Brad Watson said bids ranged from $6,000 to $48,500.
